I found this site call education for all which is a programme started by www.Stonewall.org.uk , it's purpose to educate students in schools about sexuality and minimize the effects of homophobia.<?xml:namespace prefix = o />
I think we could learn a lot from their approach and hopefully apply some of them to Cyprus education system if that is a possible. I do know how hard that it will be but one step each time. I am thinking if a first step would be to approach in some way the target group, therefore high school students , and to some research with questioners’. The results will provide the evident to approach media, or political parties or government.
I am sure if we do a research about homophobia and "bullying" we will have quite impressive figures.
1) Direct to schools Students and teachers (keep in mind a lot of teachers notice "bullying" but they close their eyes.)
2) Through Facebook groups for high schools students in Cyprus
Any ideas/ thoughts/concerns?
